It was one of the school's strategies to teach me with discipline, hoping that I could learn good virtues during my stay with the varsity.
I can say that my entire experience with the basketball varsity was a big factor that contributed to my self-development. Every game events, basketball activities such as practices, work-outs, and the varsity's voluntary participation to community services, have instilled within me good behavior, attitude, and positive outlook in life. From the game events, I learned the value of team-work and cooperation. From the basketball practices and work-outs, I learned the value of self-discipline. From the community services participated by the varsity, I learned how to value other people. After some time of being with the varsity, I realized that these values are not just present in me whenever I spend time with the team. Instead, I realized that even when I am off the field,….
The Xi-Cheung PartnershipSummaryThe case of Xi Jianping and Cheung's dye factory in China is a clear example of the challenges that can arise in a business venture. The two men had ambitious plans but made several mistakes that led to their factory's bankruptcy. Xi had no experience managing a factory. Cheung did, but he was also okay with cutting corners and skirting regulations. Together, they did not make the best team. They did not consider the environmental and legal impact of their operations, nor did they provide adequate benefits to their workers. They lacked thorough planning, and proceeded with the business almost willy-nilly as though they could take on a venture like this without having to put in much work beforehand. As a result, their factor suffered from ineffective management, high turnover, unsafe working conditions, and more. Eventually, it closed. However, despite these setbacks, Xi saw the experience as an….

Leadership Qualities Under elch at GE
From the perspective of Fielders Contingency Theory of Leadership (Northhouse Figure 6.), hat do you elch's score would be on the LPC Scale?
The Fiedler Contingency Theory suggests that leaders who are motivated by situational parameters, or who are task-oriented, will tend to take a lest humanist approach to their responsibilities. The way in which Jack elch would objectively eliminate countless underperforming divisions of GE suggests that he was decidedly task orientated in his leadership approach. This, Fiedler suggests, would make him a low scorer on the LPC scale.
elch's core Leadership Orientation/Motivation would be change. elch can be clearly identified as a transformative or change-driven leader. Indeed, he would step into the company during a recession and verging on the need for a dramatic modernization and revitalization.
Though there may have existed some concern at the start of his tenure over whether or not elch was suited….
administration of the "LMX 7 Questionnaire" and the "Sample Items from the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ) Form 5X-Short" of the course text, Leadership: Theory and Practice. An analysis concerning how responses to both questionnaires indicate a personal leadership philosophy is followed by a description concerning any questionnaire results that were surprising. Finally, the paper provides an analysis concerning the impact that the characteristics of the Leadership-Member Exchange Theory and Transformational Leadership might have on a personal leadership style and how these characteristics might help an individual become a more effective leader.
The results that emerged from the completion of the LMX 7 Questionnaire and the MLQ Form 5X-Short form the basis for a personal leadership philosophy, a philosophy that might not otherwise be formalized. Indeed, many if not most people go through their workday lives without giving much thought to what style of leadership or followership they are using, and….

A current issue that has been problematic for the current President concerns foreign policy. The public has not been thoroughly convinced that the manner in which the United States has confronted and managed issues internationally is optimal. This is due in great part to a lack of vision on behalf of the president, or an inability to effectively communicate this vision to the public in order to gain confidence and support.
The next President will be an individual with strong ethics, who also has an in-depth understanding of the complex nature of international events and issues. This next President will demonstrate a developed, informed vision, which will serve as a foundational basis for all decisions regarding foreign and domestic policy. Furthermore, the president will be able to gain support, and effectively unite the public in their vision collectively..

Leadership in public and private sector businesses is important for the growth of these businesses. Of late, many researchers have thoroughly investigated the role leadership in promoting businesses. Researchers have also tried to explore the common characteristics of global business leaders that have led their businesses to successful heights. Different models of effective leadership in corporations have also been drafted. One major aspect of leaders being explored in their ability to inspire people surrounding them and use this inspiration to achieve results that could be achieved without having complete trust of followers. While followers might be hard to make for a leader, and yet harder to retain, few researchers have put forth consolidated models of inspirational leaders that effectively make and retain followers. Two such models that will be….

Attila the Hun; Collaborative, Driven and Leadership Qualities
Leaders have followers, but the way in which this is achieved may vary. esearch may not have identified a singular set of characteristics or qualities which are always present, but there is general agreement on some qualities and styles that leaders may utilize, these include the collaborative, driven and ethical leadership styles. These are often applied in the modern context of leaders within the commercial context. However, if qualities of leader that are advocated today are valid, they will also be seen in the leaders of the past, as seen with the examining of Alexander the Great by Mintzberg (et al., 2008). Another leader who may be considered is that of Attila the Hun; a man that is portrayed as a barbarian in many texts, but must have had some leadership qualities to gain such a strong and long-term following. As the King….

Leadership Strategy from the Top Down: Lessons from the Boardroom in Small and Medium Enterprises
Leadership and management theories and strategies have proliferated at a rapid rate in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, as organizations have grown larger and more complex and have faced pressures of a much faster pace of business. The demands made on leaders of business organizations and the need for strong leadership in navigating the ever-more changeable waters of modern business have grown along with businesses themselves, in both the degree to which leadership can affect operations and overall success as well as in the number of tasks and knowledge areas that leaders are supposed to be able to handle. Much of the diversification and increased scrutiny of leadership theories, processes, and practices can be attributed to the increased importance and complexity of leadership positions.
In something of an irony, however, the many different leadership theories and….

Leadership Self-Assessment Analysis
In the wake of the corporal scandals of Enron and the Arthur Anderson Company, there have been increased calls for strong ethical leadership. Leadership had always been regarded as a key factor in ensuring the effectiveness of any organization. However, new models are also being developed to challenge the limitations of the prevailing classical theories of leadership.
This paper argues for a tempered approach, one that combines effective leadership with good management. Both factors are important, since over-managed and under-led organizations tend to lose sight of their goals. By the same token, while charismatic leaders can lead their organizations to high levels of success, the lack of management skills means that such victories do not last in the long run.
The growing awareness of corporate and white-collar crime has likewise presented new challenges to the classical leadership model. Organization leaders should now be wary of lawsuits the way physicians fear….

references first, and discourage the teachers from challenging them and assigning a lot of homework. However, two of the parents believed that a student-first attitude meant that the educational leaders should be focused on ensuring that the children received the best education possible, with the goal of surpassing any state standards for minimum education requirements.
They also seemed to feel like educational leaders should be available. They seemed to find it very off-putting when educational leaders, particularly those on the administrative level, did not make themselves available to the parents. They wanted to be able to enter into a dialogue with them and feel as if the leaders were paying attention to their issues and concerns, rather than act as if parental concerns were somehow unimportant in the educational context.
There was very little overlap in the qualities that the three groups identified as being critical in an educational leader. Instead, each group of them seemed to focus on the qualities that would permit the educational leader to interact better with them. What this suggests is that an educational leader's effectiveness should not be assessed by a single group of individuals, but by a combination of people from all different areas. Moreover, it suggests that educational leaders need flexibility, so that they can be effective leaders for students, teachers and parents, despite the varying demands of each group.
Over the decades, much research has been devoted to studying leadership traits and the qualities of an effective leader. Some of the approaches to assessing leadership include personality theory, as well as the qualitative approach to leadership research.
In the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, (1988), D.K. Simonton used the personality basis of leadership research that looks at the effectiveness of a leader as a result of particular personality traits. For this study, Simonton carried out an archival analysis of the personalities and personal histories of thirty-nine American presidents, and related that to their perceived effectiveness as Heads of State. An analysis of eight-two separate personality characteristics were ultimately reduced to five general categories; "The interpersonal, charismatic, deliberative, creative, and neurotic styles." (Simonton, 1988).
Simonton makes the point that research into leadership is frequently concerned with the question of whether a great leader is born, or becomes a great leader according….

In a nutshell, a leader can be seen as a person or an individual who is inevitably the most important person within the group or organization where he is working or associated with in any way. It is this very leader who is most often responsible for the successes and the failures of the group or the team, which is under him. However, it is sometimes said that success and failure also lies in the hands of the followers, and in nay sort of organization or group, it is in the hands of the follower that the leader's goals and dreams are generally carried out or executed.

Most conclusions on this approach were vague or indecisive in terms of social, psychological or mental significance (ice, 1978, 1981; Graen et al., 1972; Ashour, 1973).
Furthermore, over the years, many scholars have come to the realization that leadership is situational and hence there are many realistic settings like the environment, the employees, the resources, etc. that determine the characteristics needed in a leader as well as his/her business approach (Hershey and Blanchard, 1977, 1984). This is why it is important to first understand the different types of scenarios that a leader can face and then use those scenarios as the foundation on which most leadership techniques and approaches are built. This idea of leadership being situational is very helpful in outlining the methods through which leadership can be developed and has taken up a good part of the last three-decade of research (Mckenna, Boyd and Yost, 2007).
